F3 Nation’s Custom GORUCK Event Comes to Churham on 3/1/19
The GORUCK HTL is a Heavy, Tough, and Light event back-to-back-to-back. The event will start off with a 24+ hour Heavy on Day 1, then lead into a 12+ hour Tough on Day 2, and then end with a 6+ hour Light event on Day 3. You do NOT have to sign up to do every event; you can choose to do which event(s) you like.
Going for Bolts? If you choose to do every event, between each event you may be given a short break to change, refuel, and get your mind right (again). If you make it to the end of the Light event you will earn the HTL finisher patch. However, the HTL is not for the faint-hearted. A proper training and nutrition regimen are critical to successfully completing the HTL (see training below).
